National Museums and Galleries have purchased Rodger’s work as part of their collection. She has received acclaim for her energy and dynamic approach to her work. She aims to capture the essence of a moment and freeze it within an abstraction of life.
Emma Rodgers art gets straight to the core of her subject. She really inhabits the spirit of her creatures, just as they inhabit hers. It is about the flesh and bone beneath the skin, pulsing visceral forms that express the physicality and raw energy of the animal world.
There is something dark about this vision too- nature at its most untamed. Her creative process involves not only great technical skill and acute observation, but a powerful intuition and imagination. This is what makes Emmaís work so fresh and alive – David Whiting Art critic an Writer.
